Sending a Letter for Sanding Words 

2022,Sea sand, sandblasted and modelled aluminium, plastic leather, modelled plastic, dried plant fragment, motors, cables, life-size

Sea sand collides inside rotating cylinders making a sound similar to its place of origin, as if the material is remembering its place of origin. Two sheets of sandblasted aluminum, wrapped on themselves, lie on the floor touching each other slightly. By getting dry, the leaves of a twig closed on themselves, covering their more vivid inner part.
